Scumco seems to be shutting its doors. “Fading into oblivion” is how they worded it. Boards + more are on sale on their webstore if you’re looking for one last ride ❤️
Better late than never! Thrasher uploaded the edit of Tyshawn’s S.O.T.Y. trip to Australia from last year after it being stuck in music rights limbo forever. The footage of the backside flip from the cover is so nuts. Co-starring Will Jones.
Tipping Points is a sick upstate New York-based video by Taryn Ward with parts from Japhey Dow, Justin + Nate Grzechowiak, Jonny Goupil, and more.
Nico Marti made a 35-minute bro-cam video in the Krooked Gnaughty mode alongside his crew filming for Late Nite Stars’ O video.
“[The Muni benches] were going to get sent it to a yard where they grind up concrete and granite, but we were able to save them. They stacked them up one day and they had left a pallet jack out, so we used it to move it into another area with some smooth ground…So we saved six benches in total and they’re currently in a storage unit.” Brian Panebianco has a new interview with Heckride.
Constantly Thankful made a video recap of Late Nite Stars’ O premiere from a few weeks ago, which includes a pre-main event interview with Alan Bell.
Dalton Palacio and the 700k crew just dropped a promo for their upcoming video, Mahogany. (For all the handwringing that olds do about not “getting” the music that the youngs are listening to — it’s funny how the youngs are just editing their skate videos to …Gang Starr. See also: The last Crazy Ass Paterson Skaters edit.)
Happy New Year! 🍾 Here are the remaining bits of any year-end stuff you may have missed + all else from the fake week between Christmas and New Years. P.S. Found some boxes of the QS x Classic Grip Snackman grip in the warehouse and added ’em to the webstore.
“Going to the Noguchi Museum to sit in the garden before I try a trick.” If you wondered how Trung Nguyen got to be …well, Trung Nguyen, the answer is sitting in a zen garden before trying to get the clip — as evidenced by Skate Jawn‘s latest “$100 Chill” episode, which features the last filming day for Late Nite Stars’ O video.
“Xavier, what does ‘rap game Bob Burnquist’ mean?” “It means I’m the rap game Bob Burnquist.” Our friend Greg Navarro hung out with Xaviersobased for a wholesome day in the life video that gives insight into his music and origins. “Skater boys always got motion, man.”
The Skate Muzik podcast’s latest year-end episode covers the best #musicsupervision moments heard throughout 2023’s skate videos.
O is the latest in Texas skateboard technology being unleashed on New York skate spots by Late Nite Stars and Chase Walker. While STILL felt like more of a party video with a few formal parts waiting at the end, O is all business and confidently carries its nearly 40-minute runtime. Often, when a crew video gets that long its a mixed bag, but not always!
And certainly not today!
“Leftover and lost footage, glitched tapes, steady shot on, broken mic, windshield lens, and other angles.” Paul Coots uploaded a twenty-minute, black-and-white raw reel of outtakes from The HIT Video, which dropped this time, two years ago. Heavy on the Max clips, obvs. Rumor has it that Coots is working on a sequel! 🤞
Transworld, which apparently has the rights to the 411VM archive (or something to that effect, idk), revived the video magazine’s “Spot Check” featurette for a modern version. The first installment is shot by Mike Sass and checks out Borough Hall, covering every corner from the micro curved ledge to the tall ‘n short handrails.
Lee Madden and the Orchard crew put together a 2013-2023 retrospective edit of Brian Reid’s footage on account of him joining the pro ranks ❤️
Greg Szudzik and Ben Patrick’s shared part in Dana Ross’ Purpose video is live. You can buy the video in full via Dana’s webstore.
